Former RCB owner Mallya arrested in the UK

vijay mallya arrested in london, gets bail

India will make a strong case for the extradition of controversial businessman Vijay Mallya from the United Kingdom as he "squandered" public money, did not pay employees and defaulted on bank loans, a top government source said on tuesday.

He was arrested earlier on Tuesday by the Metropolitan Police's extradition unit on behalf of authorities in India, where he is wanted in connection with money laundering and high value bank demands.

Expressing delight post the arrest of beleaguered liquor baron Vijay Mallya from London, former Kingfisher employee Neetu Shukla on Tuesday said the employees will cherish the move further more when they recover their dues. "He was arrested after attending a central London police station and will appear at Westminster Magistrates' Court".

He was granted bail nearly three hours after his arrest as the beleaguered liquor baron was produced in Westminster Magistrates Court later in the day.

Also in March previous year, Mallya was blocked from receiving a $75 million severance payment from the British alcohol company Diageo, after banks and creditors demanded the money be used to settle some of his outstanding debt, reports the BBC.

It must be noted that in 1993 an extradition treaty was signed between India and the UK. The development was an outcome of the extradition request by India pursuant to orders from a Mumbai court in two different cases against the liquor baron and founder of the now-defunct Kingfisher Airlines.

"The case (Mallya) is now part of the judicial process in that country (UK) and, as such, will function on judicial considerations", Finance Minister Arun Jaitley told reporters here. The source said Indian authorities will have to present a case for extradition of Mallya. He is required to appear at Westminster Magistrates' Court on May 17. Surjewala said the government's sincerity of goal would be proved only when Mallya and Modi are brought back to India. The UK had refused to deport Mallya a year ago after India wanted him to be extradited following his silence on summons by the Indian federal investigating body CBI and Enforcement Directorate.
